Hunt in the Forest Tie


An exclusive silk tie featuring dogs inspired by one of the Ashmolean's highlight objects, the painting Hunt in the Forest by the Florentine painter and mathematician Paolo Uccello. This tie design has been created specially for the Ashmolean.

The Hunt in the Forest was painted by 15th-century Italian Renaissance artist Paolo Ucello, who was celebrated in his lifetime as a painter of perspective and of animals and landscape, Uccello was a versatile artist who worked at times on mosaic and stained glass design. This painting is a late work, probably of c.1470. It is a highly original painting, both as a nocturnal landscape and as a brilliantly structured composition.
